republic in washington state has the front-page story on the fiscal cliff called "tax hikes may not hit paychecks right away." it's about how it's already too late for employers to accurately withhold income taxes from january paychecks. and the reno sunday gazette journal has an article entitled "first person: buying a weapon at the reno gun show." the writer chronicles how he went to a gun show and bought a semiautomatic rifle in less than 30 minutes for under $600. the background check took 15 minutes. one gun seller told the reporter rifles similar to the one used in newtown were expected to double in price in the next 90 days. i just finished reading that article. pretty unbelievable. >>> a democratic president at a time of political upheaval passes a major gun-control act in the wake of several shooting tragedies. that may sound like president obama's plan for the next term, but it actually happened 44 years ago. >> today we begin to disarm the criminals and the careless and the insane. and all of our people who are deeply concerned in this country about law and order should hail
